Mmmm… My favorite season is upon us…. Strawberry Pickin’ Season! Words can’t describe a fresh picked strawberry! I took my crew out picking strawberries on Saturday. We had a blast! I’m not sure what we are going to do with all of the strawberries yet. I’m sure we will make some strawberry jam in the bread machine, possibly a strawberry shortcake, and most definitely we’ll eat them like crazy! If you live in my area, here’s a list of the local strawberry patches that I am aware of. Let me know if you know any others not listed or if you have any feedback on these patches. Normally we go to the one at Moon Farms since it’s closer.
Washington Farms: It’s always best to call or check their website before you head out to Washington Farms. Sometimes they get slammed with visitors and will be picked out for the day. Washington Farms is open from 8am-8pm Mon-Saturday as long as they have ripe berries. They are closed Sunday. Prices are $10 for a gallon of pick your own berries or $12 for pre-picked.
Moon Farms: Moon Farms is open Monday-Saturday from 9-6 and Sundays from 2-6. One thing that I particularly love about Moon Farms is that they have fresh homemade strawberry ice cream available to buy! You haven’t lived until you’ve tried fresh strawberry ice cream! It’s rather dangerous on my wallet that Moon Farms is located so close by! Pick your own berries in a gallon bucket for $10 or pre-picked for $12.
Rocky Ridge Farm: Rocky Ride farms is open Monday- Friday 1-6 and Saturday from 10-6. Clsoed on Sunday. Pick your own berries in a gallon bucket for $10 or pre-picked for $12. Located in Lexington. I haven’t been to this location, so would love to hear from those that have!
